Alamos Gold Inc. Reports Record Third Quarter Production Results, Provides Operations and Exploration Updates, and Notice of Q3-2009 Financial Results and Conference Call

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2009) - Alamos Gold Inc. (TSX:AGI) ("Alamos" or the "Company") is pleased to report that in the third quarter ending September 30, 2009, it produced a third quarter record of 42,500 ounces of gold at an expected total cash cost below $335 per ounce, which includes a 5% royalty.

Key operational metrics and production statistics for the third quarter of 2009 compared to the third quarter of 2008, and on a year-to-date basis to September 30, 2009 are presented in tables 1 and 2 at the end of this press release.

The Company is also providing a brief update on mine operations and exploration activities, and is announcing that it expects to release its third quarter 2009 financial results on Thursday, November 5, 2009 before the market opens. Senior management will host a conference call at 11:00AM EST (8:00AM PST) that day.

All amounts are in United States dollars unless stated otherwise.

Operations Update

Gold production at the Company's Mulatos Mine continues to exceed budgeted levels, with 130,500 ounces of gold produced to the end of the third quarter at an expected total cash cost of less than $335 (including a 5% royalty). Production during the third quarter has historically been challenging for the Company due to heavy seasonal rainfall. However, the Company has implemented a number of procedures to mitigate the adverse effects of heavy rainfall, and believes that these initiatives have been effective.

Mining operations continue to benefit from positive grade reconciliation relative to the block model. The Company also continues to encounter substantially less waste in the pit than predicted by the block model, as evidenced by a low waste-to-ore ratio of 0.65 during the quarter (1.04 on a year-to-date basis as at September 30, 2009). Gold recoveries have also increased on a year-over-year basis, resulting from a variety of operating initiatives, including a finer and more consistent product size being stacked on the heap, drum agglomeration, inter-lift liners, and use of the stacker-conveyor system.

The Company's next initiative for improving gold recoveries and increasing production is the closing of the crushing circuit, which will result in all ore being stacked on the leach pad passing a 3/8-inch screen. Laboratory studies indicate that finer crushing may result in a four to seven percentage-point increase in recovery. The closing of the crushing circuit is over 45% complete and is scheduled to be completed by the end of November 2009.

During the quarter, the Company retained a contractor to remove the waste overlying the Escondida high-grade zone, Main Escondida zone, and Puerto del Aire ("PdA") zones of the Mulatos Pit. The contractor's camp has been constructed and the majority of the contractor's earth moving equipment has been delivered to site. Development activities have commenced. The Company continues to expect production from the Escondida high-grade mill to commence in the fourth quarter of 2011.

The Company has also retained external consultants to prepare a scoping study evaluating the expected capital costs and benefits associated with increasing crusher throughput up to 33% from the current level of approximately 750 tonnes per hour to 1,000 tonnes per hour. A substantial amount of progress has been made and a significant increase in crusher throughput should result in a higher rate of gold production and correspondingly lower costs per ounce than would otherwise be possible at existing throughput levels. The Company expects to be able to share the findings of the scoping study before the end of 2009.

Mulatos Exploration Update

The Company's 2009 exploration program continues at a record pace with 16,700 metres ("m") of drilling in 71 holes completed during the quarter. Total drilling completed to the end of the third quarter was 55,165 m in 279 holes. Drilling during the quarter focused on definition drilling at Gap and expanding the areas of known mineralization at the Puerto del Aire ("PdA") Extension. The location of near-pit exploration projects are identified in Figure 1.

An ongoing definition and infill drilling program at Gap has demonstrated the continuity of gold-bearing silicified units, which should result in the majority of the inferred resources at Gap being converted to the measured and indicated categories. Mineralized intervals typically grade in the 1 to 2 grams of gold per tonne ("g/t Au") range and drilling continues to identify higher grade material that may be suitable for milling. Relevant assay results and drill hole collar data are presented in tables 3 and 4, respectively.

All assays from the first quarter 2009 PdA infill program have been received. Drill intercepts at PdA typically contain 1 to 2 g/t Au over thicknesses of 50 m to 100 m. Drilling continues to encounter intervals of high-grade mineralization which confirms the robustness of the zone.

Drilling at the PdA Extension continues to reveal the presence of a very large system of intense silica alteration concealed by post-mineral volcanic cover that has characteristics similar to both the high-grade Escondida and PdA zones. The results from widely spaced drill holes suggest that the zone remains open in all directions and appears to have a minimum drill-indicated strike length of 750 m, a width of at least 200 m, and ranges in thickness from 25 to 125 m. In the areas where drilling has been completed, mineralization typically begins about 175 to 200 m below surface and generally grades in the 1 to 3 g/t Au range, with localized zones of high-grade material. Relevant assay results and drill hole collar data from the PdA and PdA Extension are presented in tables 5 and 6, respectively.

At Cerro Pelon, Alamos has received the all remaining assay results from the 25 m-centre definition drilling that was completed during the second quarter. Drilling has delineated a continuous oxidized zone of gold-bearing vuggy silica that is approximately 250 m long, 30 to 80 m in width, and 70 to 150 m thick at an average grade between 2 and 3 g/t Au.

Detailed geological modelling was completed in late September and three-dimensional modelling in preparation for a resource estimate will begin shortly. Modelling indicates that certain areas of the oxide mineralization may remain open for expansion. The initial resource estimate for Cerro Pelon is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter and the majority of resources are anticipated to be classified in the measured and indicated categories. Assay results and drill hole collar data received during the third quarter are presented in tables 7 and 8, respectively.

The Company currently has three reverse circulation ("RC") rigs completing a definition and in-fill drilling program on 25-m spacings at Gap. Exploration activities in the fourth quarter will focus on completing the Gap drilling in order to meet the deadline for the Company's 2009 Reserve and Resource Statement. Once drilling is completed at Gap, the RC rigs are planned to return to the PdA Extension before moving onto the San Carlos, El Halcon, El Carricito, or East Estrella projects in late 2009 or early 2010.

QA/QC Programs

Mulatos exploration programs are conducted under the supervision of Herve Thiboutot, P.Eng., Vice President Exploration of the Company, and by Ken Balleweg, B.Sc. Geological Engineering, M.Sc. Geology, Registered Professional Geologist, Mexico Exploration Manager.
Both are Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators. Strict sampling and QA/QC protocol are followed, including the insertion of standards, blanks, and duplicates on a regular basis. Sample intervals are usually 1.5 m. Samples are sent to ALS Chemex Inc. in Hermosillo, Mexico for sample preparation and then to Vancouver, British Columbia for analysis. Analytical method is fire assay with atomic adsorption finish and gravimetric finish for individual samples with a gold concentration greater than 5.0 g/t Au. Composites presented in the assay results tables include intervals at greater than 0.5 g/t Au over a 3-m minimum width, no assay are cut unless indicated.

Cautionary Non-GAAP Statements

The Company believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. They are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared with GAAP. "Total cash costs" as used in this analysis is a non-GAAP term typically used by gold mining companies to assess the level of gross margin available to the Company per ounce of gold by subtracting these costs from the unit price realized during the period. This non-GAAP term is also used to assess the ability of a mining company to generate cash flow from operations. There may be some variation in the method of computation of "total cash costs" as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. In this context, "total cash costs" reflects the per ounce cash operating costs allocated from in-process and dore inventory associated with ounces of gold sold in the period, plus applicable royalties. "Total cash costs" may vary from one period to another due to operating efficiencies, waste-to-ore ratios, grade of ore processed, gold recovery rates and gold prices during the period.

Cautionary Note

No stock exchange, securities commission or other regulatory authority has approved or disapproved the information contained herein. This News Release includes certain "forward-looking statements". All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this release, including without limitation statements regarding forecast gold production, gold grades, recoveries, waste-to-ore ratios, total cash costs, potential mineralization and reserves, exploration results, and future plans and objectives of Alamos, are forward-looking statements that involve various risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to mining and processing of mined ore, achieving projected recovery rates, anticipated production rates and mine life, operating efficiencies, costs and expenditures, changes in mineral resources and conversion of mineral resources to proven and probable reserves, and other information that is based on forecasts of future operational or financial results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management.

Exploration results that include geophysics, sampling, and drill results on wide spacings may not be indicative of the occurrence of a mineral deposit. Such results do not provide assurance that further work will establish sufficient grade, continuity, metallurgical characteristics and economic potential to be classed as a category of mineral resource. A mineral resource which is classified as "inferred" or "indicated" has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that any or part of an "indicated mineral resource" or "inferred mineral resource" will ever be upgraded to a higher category of resource. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into proven and probable reserves.

Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", "plans", "estimates" or "intends", or stating that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved) are not statements of historical fact and may be "forward-looking statements." Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual events or results to differ from those reflected in the forward-looking statements.

There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from Alamos' expectations include, among others, risks related to international operations, the actual results of current exploration activities, conclusions of economic evaluations and changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined as well as future prices of gold and silver, as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in Alamos' Annual Information Form. Although Alamos has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
